Eva Longoria has joined the cast of the “Overboard” remake at MGM, sources have confirmed.
The film stars Anna Faris and Eugenio Derbez and is based on the 1987 romantic comedy starring Kurt Russell and Goldie Hawn.
The original movie will be re-imagined with a reversal of the leading roles. The story will focus on a spoiled playboy from one of Mexico’s wealthiest families, portrayed by Derbez, who falls overboard off his yacht. He’s then convinced by Faris’ single, working-class mom that he’s her husband.
